 When I was younger, I was desperate to find the brass ring. So I worked constantly and I wasn’t as good a father as I am now, because now my daughter takes precedence. I go to the school activities, all the softball games. I look kind of ridiculous out there. Almost everybody’s got a younger father than me. But it’s fun. I think you appreciate everything when you get to my age.

 When I directed my first film, Play Misty for Me in 1971, I thought, ‘Gee, if I could pull this off, maybe I could get behind the camera because I may be 78 some day and not want to look at myself in front of the camera’. As you go along, every chapter is a new chapter and someday you look back and say, ‘I have been doing that.’ And it’s been a nice journey.
